We made this one last night from our Nom-Nom Paelo App, a great resource for sugar-free, gluten-free, and all around healthy recipes. I believe the app had a $5.99 price tag but well worth it. You can create shopping lists and the step-by-step cooking instructions include both photos as well as remind you of the measurements for each ingredient, love love! I thought we had cardamom in our spice rack but turns out we didn’t, so I substituted a T of curry powder. J & I couldn’t believe how delicious this was. Perfect for fall!
